A BEAUTIFUL, BUT HOT DAY TO BE OUTDOORS IN GODS GREAT OUTDOORS
Fishers of Men, Alabama South held their 4th. Tournament of 2012 at Swift Creek on the Alabama River just outside of Prattville, AL. The Friday night meeting was hosted this year by First Baptist Church of Prattville. They fed us Hot Dogs, with all of the trimmings. They also had chili to go on the hot dogs, as well as several different kinds of potatoe chips. Soft drinks and tea for the drinks as well as several different kinds of deserts. Friday night we had a special guests and I imposed on him to be our speaker. Danny East the Southeast Regional Director and his daughter Linzy came to visit with us. As I said I imposed on Danny to speak and he agreed. He did a great job and spoke from a direction that every fisherman should have been able to relate to. He said that Life is like a Baitcaster reel. It has lots of Backlashes. Life is not always a backlash, but there are a lot of them and the most important thing that we all ignore is the fact that the Bible has all of the rules we need to help with the backlashes if we will just seek them out. Thank you Danny for the wise information that we have not thought about. We had no 1st time professions of faith, but had one rededication. Friday night we had 20 teams of the 21 represented at the meeting. We had 44 people present at the meeting. Saturday morning came early as did safe light.
